There are a couple of useful console command available to tweak Daikatana. But first you need to be able to open the console. Download this file first and place it into your \Data folder of the Daikatana Installation. By the next start of Daikatana you should be able to activate the console while pressing "`" key, it's the key left of "1" and under "Esc".
Note: Before you quit Daikatana please save your config file to be sure that the following binds are saved. You can replace the mentioned bind "key" with every keys you want, the following keys are only examples. Alternative you can just make a new .cfg file and put the commands into it, and execute it with the "autoexec.cfg". This file can you download here. To execute a config, just put the line "exec configname.cfg" in the "autoexec.cfg" file. Replace "configname.cfg" with the name of you config.
